Three pupils abducted by bandits at the UBE primary school at Rama in Birnin Gwari Local Government Area of Kaduna State have escaped.
One of the teachers of school while speaking with DailyTrust, noted that the three pupils had earlier been abducted but escaped when the bandits attempted to rustle some cows and motorcycles at a nearby community.
The teacher who is identified as Naomi Francis, however, stated that the pupils had been beaten by the bandits.
Meanwhile, information has not been released about the three teachers earlier abducted alongside the pupils.
Narrating how the bandits penetrated the school, she said: “They came in after the morning assembly.”
“We had all gone into the classrooms when six of the bandits came on motorcycles while others surrounded the school.”
“I had stepped out from my class when I noticed students of primary 5 and 6 running out.”
“I immediately alerted my students to run and they did.”
A resident of the community, Mai Saje Rama, confirmed that the pupils had returned to the community but said the whereabouts of the teachers was uncertain.
“The vigilante that went after them came back without success, they could not locate the bandits,” he said.
